[applause] i want to thank pg&e. i want to thank the academy of art university, the folks at aecom, comcast, kmd architects, recology. my favorite giver is anonymous. thank you, anonymous, whoever you are. now? if you have a cocktail in your hand, or you are about to find a couple, i want you to find david from the laborers.
